We purchased a connector hose from Sears. The connection inside the dehumidifier (not the external connection to the hose that goes to the drain) leaks, so the bucket below fills - not what we want to happen. We can't seem to tighten the connection enough so there is no leakage.

Attach a length of garden hose no longer than 5 feet, to the threaded drain hose connection that was supplied with your unit, to carry water to the drain. 1. Remove the drain-hole cover on the back left side of your unit. 2. Connect a garden hose to the threaded drain hose connector. 3. Push hose connector tightly to the drain-hole on Rear Grille with the arrow on the tab pointing UP. The hose attachment will accept a standard garden hose fitting. Do not over tighten the hose when connecting it to the hose connector, use a rubber washer and tighten by hand firmly without stripping the plastic threads. When being attached to hose connector drain hose connection, do not bend or kink the hose. The hose should lie flat from the dehumidifier to the drain.
No. The tube inserts straight into the drain hole. Follow the 4 sets below.
1. Connect a garden hose to the threaded drain hose connector. 2. Remove the drain-hole cover. 3. Push hose connector tightly into the drain-hole on Rear Grille. 4. Press the hose down and make sure the "Arrow" on the tab is pointing upward.
NOTE: The hose attachment will accept a standard garden hose fitting. Do not over tighten the hose when connecting it to the hose connector, use a rubber washer and tighten by hand firmly without stripping the plastic threads. Be sure the hose lays flat and has no kinks, as it will not drain properly.
If you purchased the dehumidifier new, it would have come with a part called a connector drain hose. This part is a long plastic tube with threads on one end to accept a hose. The part simply slides into the rear of the machine (with the threads of the part facing the rear). If you dont have the connector drain hose, it's part number is 5214A20027B and you can easily order it online for less than $10.
it should be generic. you just need a part with the same thread pattern. you could fix that a lot of different ways. as long as it screws in your ok. make sure you put some teflon tape on it to prevent it from dripping
Remove the drain bucket. on the top there are two pieces that can be removed just by taking them out. they are just laying in there. 1 is the brush the other is the "drain tube insert" it is a plastic tube and has a threaded fitting on one end. take your garden hose with a female connector on one end just like you were going to install on your spicket outside of your house and connect it to the threaded end of the "drain tube insert" make sure you knockout the round plastic drain plug cover hole located in the back of the unit (it is behind where your power cord was stored) it has three tabs to break. remove drain bucket. take the drain tube with hose attatched and insert it into the drain plug hole in the back and attach it onto the drain outlet (the drain outlet is inside the drain bucket side at the top it looks like an elbow fitting) push the tube so that the flap with the arrow is flush with the back. once you get the "drain tube insert" almost all the way flush with the back -->if you look inside the drain bucket side you will see where it fits over the drain outlet
you should have a drain hose connector. this connecter is inserted into the back of the dehumidifier. your hose can then be connected to the connecter. if you are also miising your connecter,sears or any store similiar will have one
